Starting September, UCL matches can be live-streamed on Facebook

If you do not have a television, or a cable TV subscription, watching the UEFA Champions League matches can be an arduous task.

You may have to look for a sports bar that will show the match, which comes with additional costs of drinks and transportation. Or you can head over to your friend’s place.

All that is about to change, you can now catch the UEFA Champions League matches right at the comfort of your bed, on your laptop.

Fox Sports has announced that they have partnered with Facebook Inc. to live-stream UEFA Champions League matches for the 2017/2018 season.

Now, before you get your hopes up, the live-stream will only be available in the United States.

According to Fox, the partnership “includes two live matches per day in the group stage, four round of 16 matches and four quarterfinal matches”.

Fox Sports, owned by Twenty-First Century Fox Inc, have also inked a deal to stream Europe’s top-tier football matches, and  they will be exclusive to Facebook and Fox Sports Go.

This deal was made as research show that young audience are increasingly relying on the internet to watch sports, rather than cable TV.

Now, can we bring this to Malaysia?
